10:13 pm
then you get floaters, that's the worst. hey, you don't have any amaretto, do you? - i'm asking you again. did you see this guy tonight? - i don't know. i have a lot of dates. it's hard to keep track. it's not like i know him well. - craig rasmussen? he's called you almost once a week for the last 25 years. - okay, so you know everything. why are you asking me questions? and what did he do? all these cops, it ain't because he's a john. - jeannie. he's a person of interest in a-- - ooh, i love your necklace. where'd you get that? - hey, your regular? he's on a killing spree. - what? that's crazy, right? - he shot five people, jeannie. maybe more. - what? - yeah, he lost his job, started drinkin', went down a hole. - no, no, no. no. he's a bus driver. he's still working. - he was laid off nine months ago. - are you sure? 'cause i've been seeing him every thursday, payday. - well, maybe he was keeping up appearances till he couldn't. - he's a real lousy drunk. i coul smell it on his breath. he was in a real bad mood tonight.

"20 bucks get you a jack. and that's just 'cause we're friends." so he gets real pissed. i told you, he was in a mood. i just walked out. - so you're saying he stayed in the room? - well, he probably got himself off. i shoulda kept that 20 bucks. - well, he hasn't slept since this began. he could still be up there.
10:15 pm
- captain, clerk says rasmussen hasn't checked out. the honda's still in the parking lot. we're on it. - so they was only in the room for, like, five minutes. then the hooker comes out and asks me to call her a cab. some other guy offers her a lift and i fell asleep, but this is room 206. - police! search warrant! - fin. - we got one. call a bus. - one leader to central. - two. guys, we need a bus in here now. - yeah, i've got multiple casualties. we need a bus sent to our location. - got three. take it easy, man, okay? help's on the way. - [unsteadily] he bangs on the door and says we're too loud, then starts shooting.
